In the nation of Namaste, citizens are very varied in their emotions and progress in the game. Few report to be progressing well, with minimal deduction of status/well-being points. Many citizens answered with negative connotations. After taking a short survey, it was shockingly revealed that 66% of citizens were living with less than 20 well-being points. However, a man who some believe to be a convict, is doing quite well. With the 3rd highest amount of status points and being in the top 5 richest people in Namaste, is Liam, our former prime minister. Many citizens are angry and unsupportive of the new laws. An individual who has a considerably large amount of money, says the government is “repressing hardworking people”. Probably referring to the new law that involves taking money from the rich to give to the poor to diminish the wealth gap. Another citizen says the government is “stealing”. Since the new law promoting more government ownership has been passed, many businesses have been taken into government possession from citizens. Residents say the government is “using their power to control everything”. A commoner who says the government has too many rules and restrictions is fighting for the idea of “more privatization, less limitations”. If more citizens join this cause, daily life in Namaste could get a little interesting. A particular individual is grieving a loss of their family member, and can’t forget a statement made by the government earlier; a government member said that “people have to die this year”. This could be thought as a form of apathy, as this person is not taking into account how hard it is to lose a member of the family, and how much it affects the individual’s life. Overall, there are many mixed emotions about the country’s functionality among citizens. Stay tuned to find out what happens in the following week in the country of Namaste.
